Visions for Vaginismus MD
We launched our new Vaginismus MD website in January 2012. Because there is considerable silence that surrounds the condition of vaginismus, one of my visions in the creation of the Vaginismus MD website was to created a forum to provide a safe and private place for women to be able to speak openly about it. Vaginismus is a condition where we can all learn from each other. The Vaginismus MD Forum, and the participation by our members, is important to the understanding, education and advocacy regarding the condition of vaginismus.
Vaginismus MD Forum hits a huge milestone of over 400 members!
The following is a post by “Heather” our moderator in celebration of this milestone.
Hi all! Over the weekend, we hit a huge milestone and now have 400 members of the VaginismusMD Forum! Huge congratulations to Dr. Pacik and Janet on this monumental success! I can never begin to thank you enough for creating such an awesome community of support for all of us.
I believe in everything the Forum stands for and love what Dr. Pacik has written concerning it:
“The VaginismusMD Forum is a place where any woman or man can ask any question about vaginismus and expect an answer. Since early 2012, 300 (NOW 400!!!!!) dedicated and vocal women have added to the strength of the VaginismusMD Forum by asking questions and disseminating information about vaginismus. The VaginismusMD Forum reads like a textbook in medicine discussing the complete range of vaginismus from symptoms to treatment and post-procedure support.
I cannot begin to describe the multiple benefits of joining this group of vocal women who:
- no longer want to feel as though they need to hide
- do not want to feel that vaginismus is “their problem alone”
- no longer tolerate being put down by their GYN doctors who too often tell them “It’s in your head” “Why don’t you just try to relax”
- do not want to feel like a freak as they watch their relationships disintegrate and their self-esteem vanish
- have tried years of failed treatments at considerable time and cost.
The power of the VaginismusMD Forum has changed all that Women now have a voice and they know they can receive needed advice and guidance on the VaginismusMD Forum. Women are now arriving for treatment much more relaxed after posting on the VaginismusMD Forum. Buckets of tears have been replaced by smiles knowing that success is around the corner when they arrive for treatment. Patients are now concerned that they are not nervous before treatment and wondering if they should be more nervous!”
I want to thank each and every one of you for adding to the success of the VaginismusMD Forum. In earlier posts, I shared of the way that I discovered Dr. Pacik’s treatment – through one member’s post about it in a vaginismus Forum. If it were not for this one person and one post talking about Dr. Pacik and her experience post-procedure, I do not know if I ever would’ve found out about this treatment. Let’s “pay it forward” and all do the same for other women out there. That is, let’s think of any and all ways we can advocate and get the word out about this amazing VaginismusMD Forum and Dr. Pacik’s treatment program???
